Mxxphis is a live town and a growing
town. It now has the best and biggest
bridge on the Mississippi river except
those at St. Louis and Rock Island. The
opening was worth celebrating with ora
tory and other pyrotechnics, but now that
all is over, a St. Louis paper suggests
that Memphis must now settle down to
the hard work of I growing up to the size

has revealed a large number of glaring
frauds and misrepresentations in the al

other things he returned a crematory as a
manufacturing establishment which con-,
turned $4,000 of materials, produced
goods of the value of $S,000 and "custom

Coksistkct is a jewel not often found
in a republican platform. Four years
ago the republican party of Illinois made
the compulsory election law an important
feature of their .platform and fought and
won a campaign on the issue But as soon
as they find this measure has alienated
thousands from their party, they cease to
voice the beauties of this measure and
make a very ungraceful flop on the ques
tion. But the motive necessity that
inspired them to this act will deceive nee.
The attitude of the democratic party now
and as it ha ever been, is plainly out
lined la their late state platform which
has been given publication in these col

For a number of years the persons who
held the office of treasurer of Wisconsin,
made it a practice to exact illegal fees
and to pocket the interest on the people's
money. - This hooking process had gone
on so long that the custom had become
an an written law. Hundreds of thous
ands of dollars were taken from the
rightful owners and a reform of the evil
seemed impossible. But when Gov.
Peck came into office he not only insist"
ed that this pilfering, for it is nothing
else, should cease, but he demanded that
the several treasurers place back in the
treasury the money Illegally taken. The
matter was taken to the court and a de
cision tendered which compelled the in
terest takers to make restitution.

stands charged by the Chicago Tribune,
the leac ing republican paper of the west,
with having illegally and wrongfully
drawn three salaries and with pocketing
interest money that belongs to the people.
The Tribune denounced Mr. Pavey as
wrong-iloer and called for his re
pudiatica by the convention. The in
surance ring and lobbyists were too
powerful, however, and the interest
grabber was renominated. Gov. Fifer
also denounced Auditor Pavey in his an
nual me aage. If these charges are true
Geu. lavey is not a fit man to hold
office, ai d if he has taken the people's

Gov. Filer's duty is clear. He should
emulate Gov. Peck's example and begin a
suit in o -der to make Gen. Pavey cover
the people's money into the people's
treasury . Let us see if Gov. Fifer has
the conn ge to do his duty or whether he
will compromise with wrong.

A DARKENED SICKROOM.
An Old Superstition Through Which the
Remedial Fewer of Sunshine Is Lost.
The custom of keeping the sickroom
darkened at all hours is still too nrevalent
in spite of modern sanitary teaching. Hall's
Journal of Health says there is no sense in
vdik; it is aa it the attendants were antici
pating the death of r,h ruilionf n,l tt
reason is asked for it is as inconsistent as
ineact. The reason usually offered is that
the patient cannot bear the light as
though the light conld not he rnt off fmm
the patient by a curtain or a screen, and as
1 1 . . .
tnougn u aaraen one part 01 the room it
were necessary to darken the whole of it.
The real reason Is an old unnei-stiHr.ua
practice connected with smallpox and other
wanoie diseases involving tne exclusion of
light. A more injurious practice really
could not be maintained, as by it a great
remedy is lost. Sunlight diffuses through
a room and warms and clarifies the air. It
has a direct influence on the minute or
ganic poisons a distinctive influence that
is most precious and it has a cheerful ef
fect upon the mind. The sick should never
be gloomy, and in the presence of the light
the shadows of gloom fly away. Happily
this fact is now recognized in hospital prac
tice, and should be equally so in private
ExceasWe Maaenlar Development,
When great muscular strength or agility
follows in the wake of physical exercise
these should be regarded as identical and
entirely subordinate to the health of body
Which the exercise has secured. To exer
cise for strength alone and to estimate it
as the chief aim is an inexcusable blunder.
There is no necessary physiological, casual
relation between strength and health. In
deed it is a notorious fact that professional
athletes are often defective in some bodily
organ, and they generally die early in life
from heart or lnng trouble. Developiir
certain sets of muscles to the exclusion of
others makes the muscular system unsym
metrical and interferes with the equable
distribution of the general blood supply.
Inordinate development of muscular power
calls for unnatural activity from the cen
tral vital organs, and thus it frequently
occurs that under the strain of some special
effort the heart or lungs fail and death re
sults, says The Doctor.
A Simple Remedy for Dyspepsia.
One teaspoonful flaxseed taken just be
fore each meal and at bedtime and a half
teaspconf ul of celery seed after each meal
and at bedtime. The flaxseed should be
rubbed in a drv cloth to fr. th
dust. They may be swallowed whole, with
enough water sprinkled over them to
dampen them or chewed before swallowing;
the latter is preferable; as they have a ri
nutty flavor the taste is not unpleasant.
They may be taken an hour or two or im
mediately before meals and just before re
tiring. Any time after meals take tue
celery seed, "ither chewing or swallowing
whole, and a few minutes after the flaxseed
at nicht. The Ladies' T?nmo
which recommends the foregoing, advises
ior min persons as an excellent addition a
tablespoonful of pure glycerin taken three
times a dav. after or with the relenr uori

Why So Many Men Are Bald.
Some one has a new theory to account
for so many baldheaded men. It is that
they keep their hair cut short, causing it
to "bleed" to death in a few years. Long
hair lives longer than short hair. There
has never been a nation with more bald
beads in it than there are now in the United
States, where a close "shingle" is the pre
vailing hair cut.
